Boston Celtics Team Facts

  • The Celtics have won each of their last 12 home games against Eastern Conference opponents that held a losing record.
  • The Celtics have covered the spread in each of their last six day games at TD Garden.
  • Each of the Celtics’ last six games against the Wizards following a home win have gone OVER the total points line.

Washington Wizards Team Facts

  • The Wizards have lost each of their last 12 road games against Atlantic Division opponents.
  • The Wizards have failed to cover the spread in each of their last four day games against teams that held a winning record.
  • Each of the Wizards’ last six games as underdogs have gone OVER the total points line.

Wizards vs Celtics prediction

As I’ve been saying for the last couple of weeks, the Celtics have nothing to play for with the best record in the NBA locked up, so the motivation just isn’t there to cover these massive numbers. The Celtics are 3-6-1 ATS in their last 10 games, and 2 of those failed covers were outright losses as double-digit favorites. Tatum, Porzingis, Brown, Holiday, White and Horford are questionable for the Celtics. While the Wizards aren’t good, laying double-digit chalk with the Celtics in this spot is nuts. This line would drastically drop if the Celtics rest their key guys. Give me the Wizards and the points while I can still get them.
